A Length of Beautifully Colored Kaya: Hemp Mosquito Netting
ca. early twentieth century
70" x 12", 178 cm x 30.25 cm
This is a lovely length of rustic, hand plied hemp kaya or mosquito netting whose color is a faded, pale, very warm powder blue.
The fibers are wonderfully wiry and the lax weaving creates a mesh like effect; there is one pale colored, cotton mesh patch that can be seen on this fine piece of old mosquito netting.
Simply beautiful in color and texture, this is a very good piece of old kaya.
